Mouse Not Working

Q: Mouse Not Working

Hi all,

My mouse randomly freezes for short instants of time, then works again. I use a corded Logitech MX518 mouse through a USB port in WinXP. When it happens, the cursor freezes, the red light from underneath the mouse stops, and windows makes the usual "a USB device has been unplugged/plugged-in" sound. The frequency of the freezing is much higher when I play CounterStrike. If the mouse is left alone, it does not appear to ever freeze.

Rebooting seems to midly alleviate the problem, but very temporarily. I've tried other USB ports to no avail and I have a 420 watt power supply. When I use the PS2 adapter, the frequency of the freezing is considerably lower, but if it does go out with a PS2 I'm pretty much screwed as Windows will not re-detect my mouse. I use default drivers, not Logitechs, but I did have this same problem ages ago with my Microsoft IntellMouse 3.0. If anyone has a similar problem, please mention it and the things you tried, successful or not. Thanks for you help.

Take it easy,
Justin

Think I found my problem. When looking through my system information, I found the following device conflicts. Ironically enough, one exists with the USB + video card. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

Preferred Solution: Mouse Not Working

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Mouse Not Working

There is a setting in BIOS setup to assign an IRQ for VGA (under pnp). You can disable it if you like.

I had this problem after a Win 10 update. The mouse stopped working both USB and Bluetooth. I tested a different mouse and that didn't work either. Touchpad worked fine. So I called Dell tech support and they suggested I uninstall Windows update and re-install the chipset drivers that they provided. I did both and mouse still didn't work. Then tech support suggested I do a Windows Restore. Again that did not solve the problem. Then they suggested I do a Windows reinstall. At this point I got annoyed since I have 30 programs that I use for my business and a total Win re-install is out of to question. I thought there must be another simpler way to solve this problem. So I did an online search and found a fix. It was a very simple problem and needed a very simple fix:
I was able to fix this problem by adding a missing MultiString value to this registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96F-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Value Type: Multi String
Value Name: UpperFilters
Value: mouclass

The Multi String Value Name: UpperFilters was missing so I added it and the mouse started working and everything is good to go!
I was very disappointed with the Dell support team I contacted. They gave me the run around for 3 days for such a sim... Read more

Hello mpmckee,

First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.

Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.

Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.

If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.

Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.

If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.

Hello, i happened to have a problem lately with mouse and mouse pointer. Yesterday i was playing a game and my pc suddenly started freezing and laging. So i hard reset him after that i boot into windows 8 and my mouse wasnt working at all. And pointer was no were to be seen either. Today i tried restoring pc but that dont help me. In bios and in advance startup options mouse is working. So i assume its in the windows. My specs are:
windows 8.1
gigabyte z77-hd3
intel core i5-3570k 3.8ghz
16 gb ram
Western digital 1TB HDD
nvidia geforce gtx 650 1GB
fsp 750W PSU
I tried everything except reinstalling windows (OS was installed week ago).

A:Mouse pointer dissapear-mouse not working

I have heard of stability issues on those Gigabyte motherboards where people are having those problems with their mice.

Is your BIOS up to date? maybe it will contain an update on the website for the BIOS that improves system stability.

Is this a PS2 Mouse, or a USB mouse. If a USB, disconnect and then reconnect. If its a USB mouse that is wireless, make sure the battery is good, and if you have another computer, do a test.

Also try to boot from your Windows Installation Media and see if your mouse shows there, could give it a try.

If freezing and lagging during gaming, then could be possible overheating. Do you have a program installed like HWmonitor checking your CPU and GPU thermals. Make sure they aren't getting to hot.

If problem continues to persist. I would start troubleshooting. If you have another computer. or spare hard disk that is SATA, try installing windows on that, and try to duplicate the issue, if it comes back, rule out the hard drive.

Next would be either the GPU, RAM, or Motherboard. You would have to stress test the GPU by using Furmark, or similar program, like MSI Kombuster. If GPU stress test passes, move on to Memory.

while computer is powered down, and PSU off or unplugged. remove and reseat the memory modules, making sure they are fully seated, Do memory diagnostics with memtestx86 or something similar, and do a few passes, If memory check passes, Its more than likely there is a problem with the motherboard.

Recently I installed a Microsoft wireless mouse and it is working. But the wired mouse is now sporadic and at times freezes. I have unplugged the wireless mouse and rebooted several times. Even did a system restore.
Also an Excel spreadsheet stopped working with the wired mouse just freezing the screen completely. Even after rebooting, the Excel will open and eventually I will get a cross hair image. I have tried to update the driver on the wired mouse but it says I already have the most uptodate one. I am running Windows 10 64 bit. I scanned with Malware antimalware and it eliminated over 300 items. I am not sure what is going on.
I hope I don't have a virus. I have Norton 360 with my Comcast subscription but now I cannot even see it in my taskbar. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but nothing happens in Control Panel when I try to uninstall.
I have a Dell XPS desktop. As I write the wired mouse is not functioning. If I unplug the mouse and put it back in the mouse port it works for a minute or so and then just dies. I don't even see the red light at the bottom of the mouse sometimes. I just unplugged the wired mouse and now it is working. So it is very odd behavior. I imagine by the time I post this the wired mouse will freeze again as has been the case. In the interim while I wait for a reply, I'll contact Comcast and see if they can help me with the Norton virus software issue.

Hello:
The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.

While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.

The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

Hey folks,

This is very frustrating and I am at my wits end. I have tried 5 different wireless mice and two wireless keyboards with nearly no success.

Hardware tried:

HP Wireless mouse. Returned to store.
Logitech mk320 mouse/keyboard combo
Logitech m325 (two different ones)
iHome Mouse (works best actually)
Logitech v220 wireless mouse (very old)
Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard 1000

With all of the mice I experience issues where the pointer disappears or seems stuck on elements on the screen, for example, the pointer seems to get stuck on the edges of windows. Pointer motion is erratic at best. With the mk320 and m325 mice the pointer does not stay in one place long enough along with the windows scroll up or down a line or two which leaves me with the pointing device version of "whack-a-mole" attempting to click on something. The v220 is a very old mouse and while it works is resolution is fairly low.

With the microsoft mouse it sometimes stops working and needs to be reset. The keyboard does the same and needs batteries removed and replaced. Sometimes that doesnt work and I need to reboot.

With the keyboard on the mk320 combo some keys don't work consistently and sometimes no keys work. Cycling power fixes the no keys issues, moving the keyboard away from the computer fixes the keys that don't work consistently otherwise.

This issue has persisted with windows 8.0 and 8.1 with two different motherboards. At no point has the wireless transceiver a... Read more

I?ve got a Vista computer running service pack 2
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU [email protected]
RAM 4.00 GB
32 bit operating system

Quite often the mouse stops working. It?s not the mouse itself that it is the problem as the same mouse works on other computers okay. It also makes no difference if it?s a wireless mouse, a USB mouse or a serial mouse.
Restarting the computer doesn?t fix the mouse problem. However if I turn off the computer unplug all connections, (mouse, monitor, speakers etc) reconnect them all again, turn back on the computer the mouse will work for another day or two.
What I?ve done is take it to a computer repair place who replaced the power supply; I?ve since taken it back to the same computer repair shop when the replacing of the power supply hasn?t worked. However they seem incapable of fixing this problem, because of course once they connect a mouse, monitor etc the mouse starts to work again.
Additional Information:
If I look on "Human Interface Devices" on that computer it only shows one device. It says that a Microsoft USB wheel mouse is working correctly, but the mouse in question on that computer is actually a serial mouse. None of the USB ports etc are showing up (?)


Anyone have any suggestions? (My computer knowledge is complete beginner) Maybe this is a hardware problem and perhaps I shouldn't be here...if so please forgive me and be kind

- Neither my USB mouse (G5 gaming laser mouse) or my PS/2 mouse (old 'TINY' mouse) works.
- I have checked every USB port but the USB mouse won't work (no power is getting to it either - no lights), other peripherals (my joystick for example) still works and so does my printer.
- The PS/2 mouse is not being picked up either.
- The cursor is on the screen.
- Neither of the mice are on device manager when plugged in.
- Keyboard works fine.
- PS/2 port is on in BIOS
- No recent harware or software aditions
- Maybe one cause: computer was accidently turned off at the plug whilst in use

Any help?

A:No mouse is working

It could be corrupted hard drive files from the accidental power off, a bad power supply or a bad/damaged bios in the motherboard

I have dug through thread after thread trying to figure out how to get my mouse to work. It's a Rosewill wired USB optical mouse. It was working just fine until one day it just stopped working. I've tried different mouses, and the mouse works fine on different computers. I've tried plugging it in different USB ports. I have tried the fix to delete all the USB root hubs, unplugging, removing the battery, draining the power then restarting. I've tried different fixes with the registry, and trying to update the drivers. But nothing is working. Any suggestion is welcomed at this point. Thank you in advance.

A:USB mouse not working

Welcome jjohn609

Have you tried turning off USB (mouse) in the Bios setup. Re-boot, turn it back ON, then Re-Boot again to see if it works ?

From time to time, just occaionally, my mouse stops working. This happens during a period of inactivity (I have been away from desktop).

Sometimes a reboot solves it. This morning (I had left pc on all night) it was not working. It took 4 reboots to get it to work. After it rebooted, the pointer was in the center of the screen but was froze.

I have tried different mouses and that doesnt make a difference.

Hi all,

I've searched the forums and found some similar situations but none of the possible solutions worked for me.
My problem is that my usb mouse is correctly recognized by W7 x64 (no exclamation points in device manager) but it refuses to work, the mouse arrow doesn't moves...
The curious is that the first time I booted into W7, the mouse worked but in the next boots I had to "Deactivate" and "Activate" the mouse in the device manager.
I've already uninstalled/reinstalled the mouse and connected it to the other USB ports (wich I'm sure that works because I can connect pen drives that work flawlessly).
An additional note might be that this same mouse works fine under Vista (is there a way to use Vista generic drivers in W7?)

Specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0GHz
Gigabyte MA770T-UD3P
ATI Radeon 4890 1Gb DDR5

Mouse: Trust Wireless Laser Mouse MI-7500X

Thank you in advance!

A:USB mouse not working

BUMP... Still unsolved!

Please ppl, someone post some thoughts/ideas to solve my problem... I can't understand why a simple usb mouse doesn't work with the W7 drivers... Is there such thing as incompatible mice with W7?

My mouse stopped working. I tried changing to another mouse but have the same problem. I've tried every USB port but that makes no difference. Occationally I can get it to work for a few seconds, but notlong enough for me to do anything. Could it be I need more memory? Before this started, it was an occasional thing. I started deleting unused games and other unused files. Now I can't get anything out of it. I did get it up in safe mode and ran a virus scan but it came back ok. Any suggestions?
 

A:Mouse not working

Ok, its kind of tricky to do without a mouse, but I just went and did it, so its possible.

You need to get into the device manager and remove your mouse (uninstall driver). Also it wouldn't hurt to do the same for your USB.

To do it. Windows Key then arrow over to control panel and hit enter. Then arrow down to system, hit enter. Hit tab until you see a dotted box around General, then hit right arrow til you get to hardware, then hit tab to get that box around Device Manager and hit enter. Hit tab then arrow down to your mouse and hit the + key. Arrow down so you have the mouse highlighted hit enter. Tab until the box is around General again, then right arrow to Driver, then tab until Uninstall. Hit enter, hit enter again.

Do same for your USB hubs.

I've watch many YouTube videos on how to fix a mouse that isn't working & after going to device manger & all that other stuff it still doesn't work. I unstalled & reinstalled the HID mouse but It still says there is a problem. Or something is blocking it.

ok so i'm using a laptop mousepad and i've been experiencing a lot of problems:

first my left click stop working so i figured it was a hardware problem, i switched the mouse settings so that i could use the right click instead however i'm still having problems where it won't click...i notice that this most happens in firefox so i figured the issue is not really hardware....Also if it stops responding and i go to task manager when i get out of task manager it starts responding again until i select a different firefox tab then it goes all to hell again.....
 

A:My mouse is not working

Have you tried reinstalling FireFox? Because if it's only happening with that program then perhaps there's either a bug that hasn't been addressed or a file could be damaged.

Have you also tried other Explorers? (Internet Explorer, so on.) And do you have the same problem with them?

 My mouse pad is not functioning properly. I can move the cursor around but when I tap the mouse pad it doesn't click, I have to click the button on the bottom and I also cannot scroll with the pad anymore. It was working this morning and then all of a sudden I could no longer click or scroll by the mouse pad. I already went to the setting and looked and it says that it's enabled and I even restored to the default setting because that helped last time but it didn't help this time.

A:HID Mouse not working

Boot into Setup (Bios) go to Peripherals or some such. Look for Legacy USB or USB Mouse or some such and if it is disabled, Enable it. Save and Exit.
Go to Start/Run (Windows key + R) and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager any devices with yellow flags need to have drivers installed.
What is the Make and Model# of your computer? On an internet computer, Go to the manufacturers support/download drivers and type in your make and model# or your service tag # and download the Chipset driver (USB Support) and any other drivers you need in the Device Manager. If not this computer, save them to a USB Flash Drive and transfer them over to the troubled computer.
You can also go to the mouse manufacturers support/download drivers site and download any drivers for you mouse.
